Apple Snow Leopard to make early UK debut

Apple's latest version of  OS X, Snow Leopard, will ship in the UK this Friday, 28th August. The price is £25 with free shipping from the UK Apple Store. This is good news for Apple Mac users who are looking forward to finally getting true 64-bit performance from their Intel-based Macs. Finder, Safari, Mail, iCal and iChat are now 64-bit native but Grand Central Dispatch and Open CL will make the most difference to your Mac's performance.

For a detailed overview of the benefits of the Apple Snow Leopard upgrade please take a look at my preview.

Meanwhile, I'm off to order a big beautiful cat for my MacPro!
